What's happened?

The library is now open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week!  If you get your best work done at two in the morning, we’ve got great news for you.  Now you can do it in full confidence that when you’ve forgotten that last reference, all the world of library books is at your fingertips.  For all the students working late nights, for all the students here over the summer doing your dissertation work, for all the students who want to get up and go in the morning – this one’s for you.
